TMJ Treatment - The Wise Choice
TMJ is a complex multi-system condition that affects both men and women, resulting in severe jaw pain. It is estimated that 10 to over 35 million people in the United States are affected by TMJ at any given time, requiring TMJ treatment.
Temporomandibular jaw disorder, or TMD, is a condition in which the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) becomes inflamed or dysfunctional. The TMJ connects the jaw to the skull behind the ears, so TMD can cause ear, face, neck, and jaw pain, in addition to other symptoms. To address this condition, Dr. Dale Spencer offers TruDenta®. TruDenta® is a drug-free TMD treatment solution that can help alleviate pain and discomfort through a non-invasive approach.
Live Life Pain-Free
We often see patients that struggle with TMD continuing to live their daily lives with recurring headaches or migraines, not even suspecting that their pain could be a result of their TMJ. The condition is often a result of stress, teeth grinding, trauma or even natural aging. No matter the cause, if you find yourself dealing with the following symptoms on a regular basis, you may be a candidate for TruDenta® to help take back control of your life by treating your pain at its source:
- Limited range of motion
- Frequent headaches or migraines
- Popping or clicking when moving the jaw
- Locking of the jaw
No Injections. No Medications.
TruDenta® is a TMD treatment option that can alleviate headaches and migraines, tinnitus, vertigo and dizziness without surgery, injections or medications. Instead, it incorporates different technologies to recognize areas of inflammation and tension in the joint, and address bite issues which can contribute to TMJ pain. Treatments may vary depending on each unique case, but typically treatments include ultrasounds, trigger point manipulation and cold laser therapy. This safe and effective whole body approach focuses on the cause of pain, rather than masking its symptoms.
I had several issues with old fillings coming lose. The staff at Hickory Dental Care were quick and professional. Dr. Spencer, I have known personally for years but always does a great job. He explains everything thoroughly and includes you in his plan. It’s always nice to see him.
Dr. Spencer and his staff are professional and provide excellent dental services. This practice has been my dental provider for over 10 years. I had a crown and a filling today with ease…. Best part… they have the latest technology that allows you to leave the office the same day with your permanent crown…. No extra trips!!! My initial visit there over 10 years ago was for a crown, and I chose them because it was completed within 2.5 hours the same day.
I had a dental emergency and the folks at Hickory Dental made time for me as quickly as humanly possible. In just a few hours my problem was fixed and I was on my way. The price was very fair for the amount of time and expertise necessary. I would highly recommend the doctors and staff to anyone needing dental work.
